It was a privilege to have my parents here visiting for this special occasion. Their Christ like lives and prayers have made me who I am today. I was reminded that generations will reap what we sow. As I looked around at my boys, I saw that the hand of God was in this from long ago. Blessings upon blessing is definitely the caption here. Raise your sons and daughters for Him and see your grandchildren raised in the admonition of the Lord. He is faithful to bring this to pass!
On January 9th, we had the blessing of dedicating our sons Daniel Lawrence and Ian Thomas to the Lord before the church body here at the Chapel.
What a privilege it is to offer back to God what He has given you as a gift. Children are from the Lord! We are only stewards of His creation and Thomas and I pray that we will honor our God as we raise them to know Him by reading His word to them. Our deepest desire is that they know Christ as their Saviour and then walk in that newness of life. Salvation by faith in Christ alone is only the first step in being made new. We have to use that same faith to walk with Him daily in order to grow and change. We want this for our sons!
The boys gifts to each other... I think Thad wanted the gift he gave Ian. Isn't that always how it is?
